It's a quiet-ish weekend for us, with just Sunday's Game of Thrones / American Gods screening officially on the calendar. Unofficially, though, there's that tiny secret casino thing tonight. It's all hush hush and limited invite, but drop us a line (and include a link to your FB or other online profile, so we know who you are). 1-2 more spots still available.
Next Friday is our pop-up craft cocktail night, The Cocktail Experiement. Bring a challenge ingredient, or just come for our in-house experimentation. It's always unexpected, and always delicious.

A speakeasy experiment in our magical loft. One kickass bartender, a fully stocked bar, and YOU bringing a liquid challenge: a bottle of something unusual for our pro to turn into a one-of-a-kind cocktail. If your bottle is used in creation of a cocktail, you (and up to three friends) get a complimentary tasting. No two cocktails will be the same, and all will be delicious.
Or, skip the challenge & just enjoy inventive craft cocktails in a better-than-bar atmosphere: a sexy low-lit loft, lots of couches, sprawling roof, chill music, serious skills behind the bar, no attitude.
Featured ingredients & cocktails TBA!
